Shamrock Half!

The Shamrock Half Marathon yesterday was my first race this year, and my first race in 5 months!  It was a great race, incredibly well-organized (the best I’ve seen so far), and I surprised myself by finishing a few seconds faster than when I ran the Rock n Roll Half — a race I was much better trained for and was not dealing with any injuries then (and this time I even stopped for a quick pee at the one porta-potty with no line!).

I’ll post a race recap later (I took pictures!), but for now, here is the coolest medal I’ve got so far:

  4. trialsoftraining — it really is a cool medal. It’s my best one by far! (And my finish was fast on my standards — I wish I was fast as you!)
